“From science to action, working for a safer tomorrow.”
The United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), Secretariat of the Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Conventions, has invited IFOAM, Organics International to present on the topic "risk reduction from hazardous pesticides” at a three-day Science Fair.
During the conferences of the parties to the three conventions in May 2015 in Geneva, delegates from 180 countries will gather to make policy decisions on the international management of hazardous chemicals, pesticides and wastes.
The accompanying Science Fair, “From science to action, working for a safer tomorrow”, is designed to provide conference delegates with the latest findings from the scientific world. President Andre Leu will represent IFOAM, sharing the movement's collective findings on agro-ecological, organic alternatives to hazardous pesticides, eco-intensification of agricultural production, and climate smart agriculture.
